Steakhouse
The Caucus Club, located in the Penobscot Building, is an historic, stylish art deco masterpiece featuring two distinct dining spaces, historic bar and live Jazz. The front entrance leads guests to the elegant front dining room with the stage being the focal point. The back entrance leads to the dark and moody back room and bar with space for mingling, cocktails and dining. Adjacent to the bar entrance is the Caucus Club Kitchen, fully viewable from the hallway of the Penobscot building.

The menu centers around the in-house dry-aging room, yielding Prime Steaks and Chops expertly butchered on site. The balance of the menu features seafood and eclectic dishes that change with the seasons. Lunch has its own unique offerings, and the Bar offers distinct offerings for Happy Hour. An extensive wine list is housed in a state of the art cellar with private lockers.

Apps and entrees were good. Vegetable side plates weren't great and were overcooked. Tomahawk was cooked to temp and had a nice flavor, but scallops were on the fishy side... almost too fishy for my taste.

Service was on point. We were well taken care of by the staff, who were very friendly and conversational, if engaged.

Will be back, as the misses weren't horrible and we still enjoyed the ambience and meal.

Oh, pianist wasn't the greatest. Seemed like his notes/tunes were all over the place. Felt like he took away from the ambience instead of improving it.

The food was spectacular as usual; however, our server was not the kindest. She acted like we were not important, she kept looking around every-time we talked to her and barely paid us attention and was very short and snappy with her responses.Maybe it is because we look young so she thought we wouldn’t tip? We still tipped the full 20%. I can’t remember her name. I think she was blonde, middle aged?She honestly kind of ruined the experience- but we will still return for the food!

My wife and I hadn’t had a date night since before the pandemic. We caught Covid just before New Year’s Eve 2021-22. Mild symptoms, we quarantined early, everyone was symptom free by January 2nd.
So going to the Caucus club on January 15th was our first Date in over 2 years. It was expensive, and worth Every Single Penny.
Every bite of food was the best we had had in years. Our concert was at 6:30 so we made reservations for 4:30.
It was quiet. Every other diner was at least 2 tables away. The wait staff was extremely attentive.
I’ll tell you what we ate, but everything was so good, there probably wasn’t a mediocre dish on the menu.
We had table-side Caesar salads, calamari, blackened salmon, Osso buco with risotto, crème brûlée, cheese cake, and several drinks.
My wife and I both agreed. Next Time, we’re not going to a show. We’re going to the Caucus Club, and we’re going to sit there, eating and drinking till they kick us out.
I don’t know if anyone from the Caucus Club will read this, but if they do, I have something important to say.

We know how hard it has been in the restaurant industry for management, wait staff, bartenders, chefs, line cooks, water boys, and everyone in between. You all have a job to do every day and lately it might feel like you are very under appreciated.
But for 1 night you offered my wife and I an escape from the tension of everything outside your doors.
Truly, Thank You
Special Thank You to Alan, our waiter. He made us feel like family.
And Tyler too, thank you

The food was phenomenal! We started with oysters on the half shell, then did a soup and salad course, main course and dessert. The whole experience was around two hours, but that was to be expected because our courses were spaced out nicely. I could see it being much louder and less personal on a Friday or Saturday night as there are a lot of tables in the space. We will definitely go there again.

Had to send my overcooked medium steak back. My overpriced king crab legs looked like snow crab. Not impressed. If I drop $300 I expect better. Won’t be back.also nobody seemed to care that there is a pandemic. Not a mask in sight.

We celebrated a birthday at the Caucus Club. The service was great and the restaurant has the best steaks around. Also the ambiance was nice with a comfortable atmosphere and little noise. Around six the piano player appeared and performed a wonderful medley of Christmas songs.

We had never been to this restaurant but found it on OpenTable. Was looking for somewhere to eat before a concert. It did not disappoint!!! Food and ambiance was fantastic. Wait staff was attentive and made us feel special. Jazz piano in the background was delightful. And the best steaks we’ve ever had. We will be back!
